Reality Check

Podcast

Episode 7: You Too Are A Lovelee Being

Sometimes, you are the only one who can give you the reality check that you need. In this episode I share some more quotes from The Untethered Soul by Micheal Singer, a book that helped me a lot in 2021. Especially during the time of this recording, I was reflecting on what letting go means to me and honestly trying my best to not give into the trauma responses I was so use to relying on.

Unlearn aspects of self so that you can be the YOU that YOU want to be 

I know I don’t have to hold on to hurt or negative feelings, and that letting go is a lifelong learning process. As I play this episode back, listen to my tone and the thoughts I shared, my heart is happy. Two months has gone by since this recording and I can say that Reality checks have gotten much easier. I welcome them now, It is refreshing to be ok with the reality of life. Living with as many blurred edges and out of sight, out of minds as I did left me at point where reality felt too terrifying.

Now I embrace my reality more and more each day, the joys of my life without running away from what is. I started saying new positive affirmations in the rising. Listening to this episode reminded me of one of my old favorite positive affirmations:

My Mind Serves me it does not work against me

Here are some of the quotes I mentioned from the book during the podcast. They each brought up so many feelings for me and made me realize how far I’ve come in my journey of self rediscovery. Reading words like these resonates now more than ever. I really love books, I am so grateful for their ability to capture thoughts for lifetimes.

Untethered Soul quotes

“Ask yourself “who am I” more often, you are not your thoughts”

“Talking releases energy”

“Reality is too real for most of us, so we temper it with the mind”

“True personal growth is about transcending the parts of you that need protection”

Letting Go?

Health is Wealth

That which is holding you down can become a powerful force that raises you up. You just have to be willing to take the ascent.

Michael A. Singer, author of The Untethered Soul

The art of letting go is a simple yet touchy art. I began reading the book The Untethered Soul: the journey beyond self this week because I was in need of guidance in this area of life. The area that calls for a genuine need to let go of what is no longer serving me. Realizing just how much energy can remain pent up within if you don’t take action or thought to remove it was mind blowing to me. So much of what we are taught by society, the norms that are all around us, have absolutely nothing to do with taking care of the self on a Mind, Body AND Spiritual level. Yet, we are all living as beings who have all three of these aspects. Learning all of this after knowing otherwise for so long is liberating. Learning to let go is a life long lesson, one that we all have the opportunity to experience everyday through the simple and the complex.

If you’re interested in self healing and getting in tune with your spirit, your essence + you like to read I’d recommend The Untethered Soul: the journey beyond self. I am only on the 9th chapter and like many nurturing spiritual books it is a text I will return to for years to come. The messages are delivered in a way that has made me feel very validated as a human being whose just come into awareness.

I know I have much more to learn about the art of letting go, like anything else it takes time.

For me letting go has looked like:

  • Acknowledging that the “bad” things that have happened are in the past and do not need life breathed into them in the present
  • Breathing. Focusing on just breathing during times where clarity feels far from me
  • Listening to 432hz vibrationally healing music throughout my day (see playlist below)
  • Writing what I am thinking, writing what I am feeling, writing what I remember
  • Meditating with no expectation for what will find me
  • Being the observer of my thoughts more often
  • Sharing to connect, instead of sharing unintentionally
  • Speaking aloud, talking to myself from the heart
  • Opening myself up instead of closing myself off
  • Being more compassionate in a general sense
